CEOs, collegiate hackers, a late-night comedian and a federal agency chairman were among the diverse group of participants at The Cable Show 2012, our three-day interactive event which demonstrated how the cable industry is delivering the digital future to consumers. A packed show floor (and lobster rolls close by) helped make Boston a great place to host the show.
